Flipkart’s “Big Billion Days”, styled on the lines of Amazon’s Prime Day, rakes in its biggest sales for the year. The four or five-day long sale usually starts around October to tap the country’s festive season, which ends with Diwali.

The company said it would also sign up more than 50,000 kiranas, or small grocery stores, for last-mile delivery.
